My partner and I stayed here in June and found the place somewhat disappointing. We had a very nice clean room but with a view of a roof and nothing else. For two nights we suffered with noise in the form of deep knocking which I would describe as a heavy door closing forcefully. This was occurring regularly until 2.30... More

We dropped in here for a lunchtime 'snack' and found that there's a fairly restricted bar sandwich menu. We ordered a 'croque madam' which was outstanding and actually fed both of us.

Our very hard to impress friends were indeed very impressed with the quality and presentation of the food served in the 1881 restaurant at dinner service. The daily menu always has a good selection and as this changes every evening there is plenty of choice for even the most picky eaters. Well done Chef.

The restaurant is a beautiful traditional, panelled room with tables laid in immaculate formal style. There is a good choice of dishes on the menu, interesting flavours, excellent quality & beautifully presented. Price for such a high standard was very reasonable. I would highly recommend this for a special meal out in a more formal setting.

The dining experience at 1881 is just that, an experience. From the pre dinner drinks to the quality of food to the after dinner relax in the library. What a gem of a place.

I was taken to Wrea Head for lunch on a lovely sunny afternoon. and what a treat it was but remember the setting the company and atmosphere were spot on. We wanted to feel special but with out the formal constraints. We got what we wanted the extra was the good food very pleasant staff and unrushed.
